Melanie Chouinard is a fantasy artist from the little mill town of Wilton, NH. During the day, she uses polymer clay, papier maché, and other media to sculpt wildlife and fantasy creations as The Silver Branch. In the evenings, she turns to beading as a further outlet for her passion, focusing mostly on bead embroidery statement pieces. For her, art is a way to convey stories and to capture the magic of nature for others to view and enjoy.
